It didn't seem appropriate in the days after Hurricane Katrina to talk about what some had been whispering. Sports, after all, was the least important issue for people to deal with in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But as the whispers grew louder, the story forced its way into the news, and now LAist is responsible for covering it. Yesterday, County Supervisor Mike Antonovich suggested the Coliseum play host to the New Orleans Saints this season, while the city recovers from the tragic destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina. The NFL rebuffed the offer because it's not feasible for this year. The Saints, for their part, have expressed a desire to play closer to their fans, preferably in Baton Rouge. But some speculate that the team would really like to play in San Antonio, or move to Los Angeles.
